Why Do I Need This HACCP Level 2 Training?

All businesses that handle and prepare food in the UK need to have a food safety management system in place.  This system is called Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP).  The complexity of this system is dependent on your business, however, the 7 principles of HACCP will still apply.  This training will take you through these 7 principles with examples and handouts.

Please note: If you have not yet completed our Level 2 food hygiene and safety course it is advisable that you complete this course first as it will provide a logical progression in learning that is required.  If you have staff new to food safety who are not involved in the preparation of food, then they should complete our food hygiene certificate level 1 training.
